We had to change the location of this month's meeting due to the Kiwanis Civic Center, our normal meeting location, being used for Kiwanis' business.  We should be back at the Kiwanis Civic Center for next month's meeting.  Watch for announcements prior to the next meeting.

Easiest directions to The Tudor House:
1)   Enter through the Portage Lakes State Park entrance from Manchester Rd.
2)   Follow the curvy main park road 1.2 miles to the beach area parking lot without making any hard turns.
3)   At the near right corner of the beach area parking lot is an access drive into the Tudor House parking lot.
4)   Park in the Tudor House parking lot.
8:00PM - Call to order and introduction of new members.
8:05PM - By special arrangement, we have permission to show "The PLUTO Files" recently aired on PBS's series.  No matter which side you're on regarding the relatively recent demotion of Pluto from planet status by the IAU, this show will educate and entertain as only Neil Degrasse Tyson can.  Guaranteed to raise a smile.
